Types of Stoves

Gas stoves use a flame for cooking, resulting in lower cooktop temperatures. They boil water faster due to direct heat. However, the centre flame location may create uneven cooking or baking. Users should carefully manage heat dispersion for best outcomes.

Electric stoves create heat via coils or smooth-top surfaces. They boil water slower than gas but reach greater stovetop temperatures. Standard load shedding may disable electric features like thermic fans. These features can be used on solar or inverter power systems.

Dual-Fuel Stoves: A versatile option. They can be electric, induction, or gas with a 240-volt or 110-volt outlet. A 240-volt outlet and gas hookup with a gas cooktop and electric oven offers the best of both worlds. This design boils water faster and more evenly due to coil heat dispersion.

Induction stoves heat cookware directly using electromagnetic fields. They have faster water boiling, higher and lower cooktop temperatures, and more consistent cooking. Magnetic cookware is needed for induction cookers. Due to these stoves’ accurate and fast temperature control, recipes may need to be adjusted.

Understanding Stove Specifications


  • Freestanding: These ranges are the most economical and fit almost anywhere in a kitchen. Cooktop controls are normally on a backsplash behind it. 
  • Slide-in ranges have front-mounted controls and a built-in look. A trim kit may be needed to fill gaps and maintain them flat with your surface. Most appliance stores sell affordable trim kits, but they’re usually included. Find out if the sides are done if you plan to put your oven at the end of a counter. 
  • Drop-in ranges are counter-depth with front controls like slide-in ranges, but they can have cabinetry below.

Gas/electric Heaters

Gas burner BTUs and electric element watts should be checked. A higher number means more cooking power. Find a burner with 15,000 BTUs or 3,000 watts to boil water quickly and sear steaks and chops.

Oval or bridge burners are ideal for griddles, oval casseroles, and gravy deglazing. The front and back components of electric ranges are connected by two neighbouring equally powered elements or an additional burner to make one long oval burner. Gas cooktops have oval burners in the centre. Bridge or griddle burner ranges often have reversible griddles.


True Convection requires an extra heating element and fan in the oven. True Convection ensures that cookies and cakes baked on different racks bake at the same rate by adding a heating unit and fan to circulate hot air.

If a range’s specs say “convection” but don’t say “True Convection” or “European Convection,” they have a fan to circulate hot air but no heating element. This doesn’t give you True Convection, but the extra heat circulation can cook or bake food more evenly.

There are also ranges without convection, which are fine but take longer to cook and bake meals. If you bake or cook often, convection can save time.

Burner Types

  • Electric coil: The cheapest burners convert electricity to heat. They cook and heat slowly. 
  • Smoothtops: Glass/ceramic surfaces with heating elements below the surface are easy to clean and stylish but scratch easily. 
  • Gas: The old-fashioned choice for cooking with fire and temperature control. 
  • Induction cooktops are efficient and versatile because they directly heat iron pans using electromagnetic energy. It doesn’t get hot without a pan, making it safer than others.

So Many Stoves for Sale, How To Choose Which to Buy

cooking on stoveWhile price is obviously a major concern when shopping for an oven, there are other aspects to think about as well, such as the oven’s aesthetics, whether or not it requires a convection fan, and how well it will fit into your kitchen. Set budget restrictions to make a realistic choice when faced with various possibilities of stoves for sale.

Given the need of space, oven widths are typically 20 inches for residential versions and 60 inches for gourmet monsters. Make sure the oven door won’t obstruct any other features in the room by taking precise measurements.

Aesthetics and functionality are enhanced by colour and finish. Stainless steel boasts a classic, expert appearance and is frequently equipped with measures that prevent fingerprints. Sleek black steel is another option, although different brands make it harder to mix and match. Although options like ruby and cobalt might be more expensive, other colours like bisque and modern finishes like slate provide customisation possibilities.

In order to prevent making rash choices, take your time exploring various online purchasing sites and making a shortlist. The effectiveness and longevity of a product can be better understood by reading reviews, both those written by experts and those written by actual customers. For individualised comments, think about asking loved ones for recommendations.

Making sure everything goes smoothly from purchase to installation depends on delivery factors. Before the oven is delivered, measure every channel to make sure it will fit. Delivery and installation are services that some retailers offer and others do not. Make sure to call a plumber in advance if the store doesn’t offer gas or dual-fuel range hook-up services.
